Prayers – September 2019
‘ How good it is to sing praises to our God, how pleasant and fitting to praise Him!’ Psalm 147:1
‘ I will praise the Lord, O my soul. I will praise the Lord all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.’ Psalm146:1
Let us join in with praise to the Lord for His unchanging nature, he is the creator of all that is on earth. He is Everlasting and Almighty. Let us praise Him for the life He has given to each one of us. He will never leave us or forsake us.
As we look to find our way forward as a church, let us choose to wait before the Lord, to hear His voice. Give us wisdom to discern God speaking to us through His Holy Spirit.
The promises in Isaiah are as relevant for us today as they were back then.
‘For I am the Lord your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.’ Isaiah 41:13
‘ Whether you turn to the left or the right, your ears will hear a voice behind you saying, ‘This is the way, walk in it.’ Isaiah 30:21
‘ I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel and watch over you.’ Ps 32:8
We are in a place where we need to trust the Lord to be with us, we have a wonderful inheritance in Him, ( Read Ephesians1: 3-14). We pray that the Lord will help us to expect great things for His church here. Let us call out to the Lord to prepare us, let us come before Him openly and honestly asking Him to show us how to wait before Him.
‘Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.’ Ps 27:14
As a church, we want to see ‘ your kingdom come, here’ . Please show us the way forward. We know that’ In him ( Jesus) and through faith in Him we may approach God with confidence.’ Let us do that over this month so we may move on knowing God is before us.
